Central Coast Youth Skills and Employment Centre Now Open
Federal Member for Dobell, Karen McNamara, was onsite to officially open the project today and said completion of the information technology overlay has delivered on an important election commitment to invest in employment opportunities for young people in Tuggerah.
“The exciting project delivered a cluster of serviced offices fitted with audio visual aids, conferencing equipment and internet, all powered by Solar Photovoltaics (PV) energy,” Mrs McNamara said.
“Solar energy will provide significant cost savings for the centre in the long term and the outdoor hub provides a space for residents and visitors to network and train.”
“The technology overlay of the Centre is essential to provide the necessary support and facilities to assist the start-up businesses as they get off the ground and interact with the world at large.
“In addition to the 30 jobs created during the construction phase of this project, the Central Coast Youth Skills and Employment Centre will employ some 300 individuals, including 200 apprentices and trainees when fully operational.” Mrs McNamara said.
Delivering Better Community Infrastructure for Dobell
Assistant Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development Jamie Briggs said the Australian Government had fully funded the $700,000 information technology overlay for the project.
“This project is yet another example that Karen McNamara is delivering better community infrastructure for Dobell.” Mr Briggs said.
Works commenced on the project in February 2015 and was completed by June 2015.
